Diehard Obituary

Diehard, 66, passed away on June 13, 2016. Diehard lived an eventful life and in his later years lived his life carefree. He served his country as a Marine and Vietnam Veteran and retired in 1978 from the Marine Corps.

He then chose a career with the United States Forest Service until he retired in 2005. Also in that time, from 1982-2000, he was part of a Biker family and was an awesome tattoo artist for 30 years. He was full of knowledge and experience and always had something to teach everyone he met. Diehard was artistic and loved music and books. He would say that the life he lived was "Too much fun, For Sure, For Sure".

Diehard is now reunited with his mother, Helen and his father, Luis in heaven.

He leaves behind his wife of 17 years, Becky "Gem", along with his 3 children, Venitia, Helena, and Harley, his 4 step children, Eddie, Abe, Jessica, Stacey, his 15 grandchildren and his 1 great grandchild and one more on the way, and many good friends.
He was always fun to be around even if he was not feeling good. He would still find a way to humor everyone and let us know that he cares. He will be deeply missed.

The burial will be held at 10 a.m., on June 24, 2016, at Fort Bliss National Cemetery in El Paso, TX. 5200 Fred Wilson Avenue, Fort Bliss, TX 79906.
Due to other scheduled services, it has been requested to arrive no earlier than 9:45 a.m. We will meet at the West Shelter parking area until services at 10 a.m. The memorial service is pending and will occur in July.

The family is grateful for all of the support and kind words.
